Dad was the best Dad and Granpa “ever”. He was full of “life” and “ love”. He loved people, animals, nature, wildlife, hunting, fishing, fun and teasing. He was kind and caring to friends and neighbors. He was always ready to offer help and “wisdom” when he could.
Annalee the love of his life, shared quite an adventure for 70 years.
Dad was always young at heart.
